My water supply pump to house works but does not pump water from tank to house


What type of pump is it? Is it a shallow well pump or submersible
pump? Is the pump connected to a pressure tank? How have you confirmed that the pump is working properly? Is there a drain valve, and is there water pressure from the drain valve when it is opened? If the pressure tank is of the pre-charged type, is it working properly? Is there water coming out of the air valve? Are there any shut-off valves in the system which may have been turned off, preventing water flow?

I have a Zoeller Water Ridd'r II Model 48 Sump pump. The pump comes on okay, but will nit shutoff. The float is not impededd, it's just laying on the bottom of the sump. Is this a defective...


If I undrestand your description, when the resevoir is empty, the float lays on the bottom of the resevoir but, the pump doesn't shut off, after water is pumped out? You have to look at this as opposite of a toilet tank filling with water. In a toilet, the water rises and the foat turn the water flow off. In a sump the water will rise, and the float will turnthe pump on until the resevoir is empty, then it will open the system and turn off the pump. If the float doesn't rise, the resevoir will overflow and the pump won't come on at all. If the float rises and the pump comes on but, the float does "not" drop, the pump will continue to run after the resevoir is empty.

This is Zoellers link. I don't see your pump but they do have a support link. If the float rises and falls with the height of the water, turns pump on, then drops "all the way" and pump doesn't turn off, the switch is bad not the float. Make sure there is nothing in the way of the float dropping to it's full down position.

How can I tell if a WM48 Zoeller Sump pump is operational. It appears the water level is over the float.


Depending on the sensitivity of the float switch you may find that the float must be completely upside-down for the pump to turn on. The easiest way to check if the pump works is grab the float by hand and hold it in the inverted position - if your pump kicks in and starts pumping you know the pump itself works and you may want to adjust your float (I use tie-straps around the handle and around the float cord to artificially shorten the float). If your pump does not pump water when the float is inverted try shaking the float to see if the inner switch is stuck. Hope that helps.

My Little Giant, Model VCMA 15UL, condensate pump is cycling on and off very frequently. It starts and runs for about five seconds and then stops. It repeats this cycle about every 30 seconds. When this...


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.


Replace the check valve that is part if the discharge hose barb. When it fails the water trapped in the vertical section of the tube comes back into the tank and cycles the float on again causing what you describe. The best way to confirm this would be to watch the water level as soon as the pump shuts off and see if it climbs without any other source of water coming into it. If it is not rising then the issue is with the float itself and is not worth fixing; replace the unit in that case.

Just purchased a home with water ace sump pump.


That's the idea; if you lift the float the water starts pumping because it works off of that float. That type of pump is usually meant for water that is in a tub or bucket, so that when the water reaches a certain height and causes the float to rise allowing the pump to kick on. I use a pump like that to pump our the drained water from my washing machine in my basement, i let the water go into a big 50 gallon drum and then once the drum is half full i have it set so the float rises and pumps out the water. That being said, if you are putting this in your basement at floor level, you would need to get a 10 gallon bucket meant for sump pumps (you can get one at your local home store) and rent a jackhammer if your basement is concrete and put the bucket in the floor and the sump pump in the bucket, this is called a sump pit. Another option is to get whats often called a "floor ******" pump. Its a pump that sucks the water out when it reaches around a half inch of depth and it can be used in several feet of water (I've used these as well, there is no float involved), and it can be set on level ground there is no sump pit needed. The one thing with my pump you may not want, is that it's constantly running because its constantly monitoring for water so that a lot of water will not build up (especially if water can damage some thing in the surrounding area) . You can check out all the types at your local home store.

Ariston ventless dryer- "Clean Filter" light won't turn off, so dryer won't start


I had this same problem. The dryer would turn on for a few seconds and I could hear the water pump working followed by the "clean filter" light. This dryer has a float sensor which detects whether the pump is successfully getting rid of the condensed water. The only problem is that lint and other particulates condense out in the water and over time the float sensor gets stuck in the up position. The Ariston call center explained that the float sensor can trip the "Clean Filter" light.

In any case, the float sensor is located in the back of the dryer where the pump outlet tube comes out (when facing the back, it is in the lower right). I had to take apart quite a bit of the dryer to get access to the sensor. I ended up taking the near side off to release the plastic snaps that hold the cover over the sensor.

To fix the sensor, all I had to do was clean out the "bath" that the sensor floats in. And then figure out how to put it all back together.

Hotpoint aquarius CTD00 dryer won't heat


I have just had a similar problem and fixed it today.
The "Empty Water" light was staying on and no heat was given out to dry the load.
I found it to be the float switch in the condenser unit at the back left. It had stuck with fluff and debris. I cleaned out the condenser reservoir and the polystrene float and now all is well.
To get to this unit you must first,
Take of the top and the left hand side panel.
Locate the 2 locking tabs that hold the top half of the condenser onto the back panel and release this part.
Remove this by releasing 2 further tabs that hold it to it's bottom half,
and you will see the float switch assembly on the left hand side.
Clean out the condenser reservoir of any water and aslo clean the polystyrene float, it needs to be free to slide up and down between the plastic guides.
Hope this helps.

Will not shut off at end of the drain cycle


there should be a float behind the fill valve with a magnet in it which operates a reed switch. This switch keeps the pump running as long as the base has water in it or if the float is stuck on the up side (and makes the pump "think" that there's water in the base). Check this float to see if it's stuck and release it so it could tell the pump when to stop draining. Hope this solves your problem.
